11:07pm
that's predicted right now. if something happens with the front, that could change the track. at this point, though, again, winds 40 miles per hour, that does make it a tropical storm. it will gain some strength before it does head out to sea and we'll keep you updated on that. >> that is coming, thanks. a man has died after a stolen car crashed into his van. the accident happened yesterday afternoon on bell and ferndale avenues. police say that a shooting suspect crashed a stolen car in the other man's vehicle. that victim was ejected and died at the hospital. so far, no charges have been filled in the case. a gas station clerk is shot burg a robbery in bel air. it happened on west mcphail road. the suspect ran away from the area. the clerk was taken to the hospital, his condition is unknown tonight. well, an arrest could be just around the corner in anunsolved murder. the family of a young man who was killed at a birthday party

of some divine intervention. for 47 straight days, temperatures in oklahoma city have been 90 or more. there has been only one day below 100 so far this month, and it's expected to be 100 degrees or more through at least friday. this summer's searing heat is setting new standards. this month alone, high temperature records have been tied or broken over 800 times. a half dozen cities not only broke records for a particular day but set all-time highs since records have been kept. >> never in my life i don't think it was this dry. >> reporter: extremely dry weather is blamed on fires that have already burned nearly 5 million acres in the southwest so far this summer. this is the driest start to the year ever in new mexico. the u.s. drought monitor released thursday showed 29% of the country in droughts, 12% of the country in exceptional drought, the largest extent on record, which means tough times for plants and animals.

11:20pm
>> that's the air moving here but it's coming in two different ways. we start to warm up tomorrow. that's not the record-breaking heat that we were just talking about. that's coming later in the week. so we'll get to that in just a moment. 91 degrees is where we stopped out today after sarting out the day at 68. that average of 88, we're not getting close to it. we're going to go way by it this entire week. tonight, coming in at 79 degrees, ask the numbers are starting to creep up because of the southwesterly winds and with the southwesterly wind, we now have code orange air quality alerts in effect for all of these counties and they're likely to be extended for most of the week and later in the week probably up to code red warnings because air quality's going to get pretty rough because of this. we were just showing you a story on the heat and even at this hour, it's 106 in phoenix. so 92 in dallas, still close to 90 in parts of the northern
11:21pm
plains. that is the air that's moving in our direction. as we said, part of it comes tomorrow because of a cold front that's approaching us. the other thing that cold front's going to do is deflect tropical storm bret out to sea, keep it away from the east coast because this right here is that new tropical storm that we were just talking about at the beginning of the show. the way it all comes together, it's not moving much right now, still offshore with winds about 40 miles per hour but over time, it gets pulled to the north and eventually, gets a huge kick out to the east because of the front coming our way and you can see winds at this point are 40 miles per hour, it's moving off to the southeast. so drifting barely at 2 miles per hour. it will start to do some loops. as far as the front goes, this is the timing of that, comes down from the north and scoots out of here by wednesday. chance for thunderstorms late tomorrow afternoon. the heat is going to follow. so out on the water, as those winds pick up out of the
11:22pm
southwest tomorrow, tonight we go down to about 70 degrees. that's it. and tomorrow, we get up to 93 and that is just the beginning. that cold front comes through, we stay in the 90s, and then we go to the upper 90s by the end of the week. adam? >> not looking forward to that. coming up next in sports, the orioles are on a winning track these days, pop the champagne at two in a row. champagne at two in a row. stan has hig,, [ bailiff ] fee court is now in session.
11:23pm

[ male announcer ] don't pay a change fee on top of a fare difference. fly southwest, the only major airline that never charges change fees.
11:24pm
11:25pm
stan is here with our sports report. >> i've got to give a special shoutout to brenda, gerald, and mijo, we tore it up today, raising food and getting a whole bunch of money for the homeless and people that need food here in baltimore. but today's starting orioles pitcher, he got shellacked early on. 3-0 in the 1st inning before the birds comfortably won their
